While Fortnite may be lacking events, third-party tournaments are thriving

Fortnite may be lacking in events, but third-party organizers are making sure to give the community what they deserve.

It is no secret that OG Fortnite has brought back the largest player base Fortnite has ever seen. With that, Fortnite had multiple events a week planned, trying to immerse everyone into the competitive side of the Battle Royale.

Sadly, though, with many difficulties and issues, a great deal of these events had to be canceled.

With no Ranked Cups, FNCS events and more, many have been looking to third-party event organizers for their Fortnite competitive fix.

Third-party tournaments help keep Fortnite's competitive scene alive

FNCS Globals concluded this October. This means that there will be zero large competitive Fortnite events for the rest of the year. With some of the more anticipated cups also being canceled, many have been wondering just what to play in Fortnite.

Luckily, many large creators and organizers dropped in to save the day.

BoomTV, the team behind many large third-party Fortnite events, hosted a massive $100,000 tournament called "The Reunion." Yep, just as the name sounds, this tournament took all your favorite Fortnite creators from the past and teamed them with some of the top pros in Fortnite today.

The event was intense, it was fun and it even mixed up NA and EU servers. Not only that, but everyone had to play Zero Build matches and Battle Royale matches.

Many smaller third-party events are keeping the Fortnite community together

Whether it's a $200 prize pool or a $100,000 prize pool, many creators are also still hosting small events to give players something to look forward to. Creators such as ThePeachCobbler, ManuTV, OGLukky, unamusedbryson, Reddysh and more have put on multiple events with various different prize pools.

Hopefully, this just goes to show that the Fortnite community is thriving, whether or not the in-game tournaments are.
